Movie Review – ‘The God Inside My Ear’ (2017)

Joe Badon makes his directorial debut with The God Inside My Ear. It is a beautifully written film that focuses on the aesthetic of life and existence. The plot lures you into this psychological thriller as the steps of healing dreadfully unfold. Read on to get more of my thoughts on this film.

Fred played by Joseph Estrade, who also produced the film.

The God Inside My Ear’s synopsis:

After experiencing a peculiar and sudden breakup with her boyfriend, Elizia discovers a world of conspiracies, strange voices and horrifying visions.

At the start, we are introduced to our main character, Elizia (Linnea Gregg: Swipe Left to Live 2017), and her boyfriend, Fred (Joseph Estrade: Things With Feathers 2017). He explains how he’s found something greater than love, a deepness and a whole new meaning of life, and that his inner ear has been awakened by local wizards. Yeah, Elizia wasn’t buying it either.

Answering calls from beyond

After their breakup, Elizia finds herself dealing with the heartache and leaves on an emotionally charged journey. Her ex-boyfriend perfectly anchors her in a place of vulnerability that exposes her to paranoia brought on by a mysterious Telemarketer. She is stuck with the daunting tasks of everyday life while dealing with this new realm of strange voices and horrifying visions. Her friends perceive her demeanor as a cry for help. Elizia takes the advice and attempts to put her focus on something new and exciting. She even goes out on a few dates; but, despite all of these efforts, the visions, voices and phone calls continued to bombard her.

The pieces of this puzzle are exposed little by little as you try to guess what’s going to happen next. There’s enough twists and surprises to keep you guessing. The closing scene takes all your thoughts, blends them together with some added shocks, and serves you an ending that blows your mind. For me, the scariest part about this whole movie is the fact that we’ve all been there. It’s a story showcasing the downward spiral, a heartbroken tale into a world of psychedelic depression.

Joe Badon on the set of ‘The God Inside My Ear’

To conclude, The God Inside My Ear was very suspenseful, and ironically, the film opened my perception to things in a different way. It gave me insight into my past, as I was once Elizia, heartbroken and not knowing where to turn. Linnea Gregg clinches viewers with an iron grip with her spot-on depiction of emotional frenzy. The film is creepy and guaranteed to have you questioning aspects of your own experiences. Joe Badon did a phenomenal job writing and directing this film. He took the trippy imagery of his art and brought it to life. I look forward to what he comes up with next.
